This past weekend came and went like a tornado. I hoped on a flight on Friday to my home-state of Wisconsin and was greeted by my wonderful parents. A quick night of dining out and some much-needed uninterrupted conversation was about all we could fit in before Saturday’s wedding. I had the pleasure of photographing Hillary and Mike’s day at the lovely St. John’s Military Academy Chapel and the always elegant Wisconsin City club. Despite the rain, the wedding was still bright with joy and beauty. After the full day of shooting, I was able to soak in some time with my parents and nephews who were staying the night at my parents. Popcorn, soda, the Hobbit and late-night conversation was the perfect cap to the day. But Sunday afternoon came quick and before I knew it, I was back on a plane to good ole’ AZ. Before, I was able to sneak in some face time (and I mean actual not the iPhone kind lol) with my sisters who popped in to see me. While the trip was short, it boosted my tired, busy heart in a way that only family and “home” can.
Since it’s Monday, can I just talk about my #mcm?! That’s (man crush Monday) for those of you who were wondering. You’re welcome. Anyway, I just HAVE to give a shout out to my amazing hubby who has been rockin’ it. The past couple months have been increasingly busy for me. Photo shoots. Holy Yoga. Launching Beneath the Olive Tree. Traveling. As my workload increases, his does as well. Not only has he been an incredible support to me as I take on these new and exciting dreams, but he has been such a rockstar daddy to our Bella. He has recently taken on more responsibility at his full-time job, more responsibility at home and still manages to workout daily, lead our small group and love us well. I am so, so proud of this man and SO thankful that he is by my side. While I am technically the name and face of this business and the BTOT ministry, there is NO way I would be able to do any of this without him. He encourages me, gives me new ideas, challenges me and keeps my heart in the right place. Man Crush Monday (and every day after)!
Happy Monday, everyone!
